The NHL is a different sort of entertainment business. This is a competition with a goal to win it all. So, yes, the owners do what they can to satisfy what the fans want, so they offer more than the competition. These are not "outrageous". Owners are doing their job. The CBA allowed them to circumvent the CAP. Etc. etc., it's time the players suck it up and admit that they are the ones constantly getting raises because of all this, and that maybe, just maybe there's also a time for the owners to fix what is wrong with the CBA and ensure they won't lose money. Don't you think?
Stop crying about owners giving "ridiculous" amounts of money. They (those who can) are doing what the fans want. Go on capgeek and see for yourself how much CAP room is there available league-wide. A lot. And that's not because of "ridiculous" contracts, it's because many owners don't want to go (further) into the red.
What you want is a league where owners don't "overpay". Not possible.
It's not about players being spoiled, it's about how professional sports work.
